Environmental Responsibility

Climate Change & Emissions

Our Approach

QL acknowledges the potential risks and impacts associated with climate change, which if unmitigated, could potentially affect the Group’s diverse business operations. These risks and impacts comprise both physical and transitional climate change risks. We also acknowledge that it is possible that the Group’s operations, through the consumption of various types of energy and the release of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions may also be a contributory factor to climate change.

We are responding to climate impacts by managing our emissions in full compliance with air emission standards and increasing our energy efficiency. In support of a cleaner environment, we harness renewable energy from various sustainable sources and offer more customers our solar energy solution.

Climate Risks and Opportunities
Risk Category Risk & Description Time Horizon
Transition Risks Policy & Legal Increased regulatory requirement such as reporting obligation may lead to higher compliance cost, assets may need to be impaired. Short to long term
Technology Cost of transitioning to lower emission technology includes arising from investment in technology to reduce reliance on fossil fuel, improve energy efficiency and mitigate emissions to improve air quality. Short to long term
Market & Reputation Changing stakeholders’ preference such as shift in the consumers demand to climate-change friendly products, reduced financing availability in affected sectors etc. Short to long term
Physical Risks Acute Increased extreme weather patterns such as heatwave and drought, cyclones, flood & turbulent sea condition could result in supply chain interruption such as disruption of fishing activities & crop production, livestock productivity. In addition, this could reduce production capacity & exposure to assets damage which may lead to increased insurance premium etc. Short to long term
Chronic Rising temperature may have impact on human health which may lead to increase medical cost & affect productivity. Rising temperature may cause the increase in energy cost such as to maintain temperature within poultry farming & marine production operations. Long term
Opportunities Energy source Reduced operating cost can be the outcome arising from the use alternate source of fuel and energy which could be renewable or green (e.g. biomass and solar). Short to long term
Products & services Development of products through R&D and innovation to penetrate new market e.g. segment of customers who prefer ESG friendly products.

BM Greentech Berhad (a member of QL Group), being a clean energy solution provider, stands to benefit from such climate-change transition.
